The Edison Local School District will highlight its strategic plan for its schools and is inviting the public to partake in the conversation.
Superintendent Bill Beattie said a public session will be held Sept. 19 at Edison High School and includes a light dinner at 4:30 p.m., a presentation at 5:30 p.m. in the auditorium and the regular school board meeting at 7 p.m.
“We’ve revised the strategic plan and come up with a new mission and vision statement, as well as a profile of a graduate and four goals that will help drive the district to make day-to-day decisions,” Beattie said. “We’re inviting the public to review the strategic plan and we’re going to be asking for the community’s input.”
The strategic plan’s mission statement is “Prepared for tomorrow,” while the vision statement is “to educate, engage and inspire all graduates to be employed, enlisted and/or enrolled.” It also includes a profile of a graduate as someone who is confident, competent and ready for life, can communicate and collaborate, cares about themselves and their community and is committed to the importance of learning. The plan further incorporates a school culture to engage students and staff in a positive school and classroom culture that builds upon community traditions and values; student success by providing a well-balanced academic and career preparation program that prepares students for work, further education or service; community engagement that increases their support by building trust, being accountable and maintaining open lines of communication; and operational effectiveness by maintaining high standards for fiscal responsibility to maximize efficiencies, operational effectiveness and school safety.
Mailers will be sent to community members informing them of the event.
